Abstract

INTRODUCTION: Beginning in the summer of 1969, large numbers of law students were mobilized by Ralph Nader for intensive studies of federal agencies. These projects culminated in a number of critical reports focusing on the Federal Trade Commission, the Interstate Commerce Commission, the National Air Pollution Control Administration, and the Food and Drug Administration.' The project participants encountered the bureaucratic roadblocks which citizens commonly face in attempting to invoke the Freedom of Information Act.
